New everything...

Nagisa Heel Up plate:

Should make driving a lot more comfortable. The new seating poition and lack of carpet has made my feet sit a bit too low.

DECA June 2010

Just a few pics from the SAU DECA day a few weeks back. The addition of new struts and 22mm Front and 25mm Rear Perrin Swaybars and Endlinks has transformed the car, and it was the most fun I've had in motorsport. The car is so taily now - just the way I like it.

I came 4th outright and 3rd in AWD class....exactly the same result I had last time! Will be on again in August so hopefully I can better it this time around.
